I woke up this morning in the 9's (160's). So I skipped breakfast and waited for it to come down.
I had some nuts and two high protein/low GI cookies for breakfast at around 10:00. My sugar was in range before this, but out of range afterwards so I waited to have lunch.
I had a sandwich (low GI bread, biltong/jerky filling) at about 16:00, when my sugar was 5 (90). As a treat I decided to allow myself a third of a small packet of potato chips, bringing the total carbs of the meal up to 40g. Boy was that a mistake!
After eating I fell asleep on the couch and woke up at 23:00. I was shaky and had been sweating. My sugar was over 11 (198), 7 hours after eating 40g of carbs!
I had two low fat sausages for supper and decided it's time to call it a night. My sugar is sitting at 9.7 (175) now, after only eating two meals and 70g of carbs today.
What do you think is causing these highs?
1) (Illness (I've got bad allergies and have had two courses of antibiotics but am still sick)
2) Possible impending period?
3) Wrong type of carbs (even though it was only 10g!)
4) Any other ideas?
